Changes from previous devices include the triple-lens rear camera system and the A13 Bionic chip.[6] The 11 Pro is Apple's first iPhone to feature a "pro" designation, which was previously used only for larger Apple devices, such as the IPad Pro and MacBook Pro,[7] and the first to include in the box an 18W fast charger and a Lightning to USB-C cable that allows connection to current Mac computers.[8]


The iPhone 11 Pro is available in gold, silver, Space Gray, and Midnight Green, a new color previously not available on iPhones.[9] Similar to the iPhone XS, there is a display cutout at the front that includes the 12MP TrueDepth camera system and speaker. There is also a new rear camera design with three cameras and a flash in a larger, square-shaped bump, which is the most visible difference compared to the iPhone XS.[10][11] The Apple logo is now centered on the back of the device with no text, and the glass has a frosted matte finish, unlike the glossy finish found on other glass-backed iPhones.[12]



The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max both have an A13 Bionic processor. Both phones have three internal storage options: 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB, and have 4 GB of RAM.[13][1] Both models are rated IP68 water and dust resistant, and are resistant for 30 minutes at a depth of 4 meters. The warranty does not cover any water damage to the phone. Also, like previous iPhones, both phones do not have a headphone jack, and come with wired EarPods with a Lightning connector.[11] The iPhone 11 Pro is the first iPhone to be sold with an 18 watt fast charger in the box as opposed to the 5 watt charger in the iPhone XS and previous iPhones.[14]


The iPhone 11 Pro has a 5.8 inch OLED display with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels (458 ppi), while the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5 inch OLED display with a resolution of 2688×1242 pixels (458 ppi). Both models feature a Super Retina XDR Display with a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a notch at the top for the TrueDepth camera system and speaker. Apple describes the display as having a "mini Apple Pro Display XDR" on a phone. They also have a True Tone and wide color display supporting HDR with 800 nits of standard brightness and 1200 nits peak brightness if necessary. The screen has an oleophobic coating that is fingerprint-resistant.[11]


The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max both include a triple-lens 12MP rear camera array. There is one f/2.4 ultra wide angle lens with a 120 degree field of view and 2x optical zoom out, one f/1.8 wide angle lens, and one f/2.0 telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom in. The iPhone 11 Pro supports 4K video up to 60 fps and 1080p slow motion at up to 240 fps.[15] The phone also features an audio zoom feature which focuses audio on the area that is being zoomed in on.[14] All of the cameras support video although only the wide and telephoto come with optical image stabilization. It supports a Portrait Mode supporting depth control and an advanced bokeh effect. The phone also has an automatic Night Mode allowing the camera to take brighter pictures with reduced noise in low light environments. There is also a redesigned camera app that adds new features such as a scroll wheel for choosing between the different lenses and long-pressing the shutter button to take a video. Apple has also announced a new Deep Fusion feature which will take advantage of AI and machine learning for image processing.[11][13][1][15]

Both models also have a 12MP TrueDepth front camera with a f/2.0 aperture. There is a burst mode, image stabilization, HDR and a portrait mode with supporting an advanced bokeh effect. The front camera also supports stabilized 4K video recording up to 60fps.[11][13][1] Apple has added slow motion video recording to the front camera in 1080p at up to 120 fps, a feature which Apple refers to as "slofies". Similar to previous iPhone models, the TrueDepth system is also used for Face ID and Animoji.[15]

Video can be captured with multiple cameras at the same time, through the multi camera recording feature.[16]


The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max initially shipped with the iOS 13 operating system. The phone also comes with Siri, Face ID (through the TrueDepth camera), Apple Pay, and supports Apple Card.[11][13][1]


Upon release, the iPhone 11 Pro received a mostly positive reception, with critics praising the improvements to the camera, display, and battery, although it was criticized for its similar design to the iPhone XS and the large camera bump, as well as the lack of rumored features such as bilateral wireless charging and USB-C. TechRadar critics praised the improved camera array, calling it "clearly the big upgrade", and also praised the faster A13 Bionic processor, and the display, while critiquing the design similarities compared to the iPhone XS including display cutout for the sensor housing, commonly referred to as “the notch,” and also criticizing the cost.[17][18] Pocket Lint also positively described the camera, the processor, display, and battery, camera design, and lack of bilateral wireless charging.[19][20] The Verge and T3 positively described the general aspects of the phone, while stating that the 'pro' label may not be fully justified as the phone only helps Apple keep up with the competitors, not surpass them.[21][22]
